July is upon us, and there’s no better way to ring it in than with one of our best playlists yet
From Spotify to Apple, the drama of music streaming sites has been dominating the news. Gallant's Weight In Gold might have had its premiere on the controversial Apple Music's radio show, but we're focused on how the track is a bold and emotional earworm. A new song from R&B vocalist Jacob Banks also gives us strong vocals and a standout hook, while dream pop duo Beach House's noisier Sparks is a promising hint of their upcoming album. Of course, we'd never leave a new RAC mix out of the, well, mix – their rework of Saint Raymond's Young Blood is distinctly bright and poppy. Speaking of the electronic, we couldn't get enough of Giraffage when he hit Singapore's shores in June. We're throwing it back to his infectious number Tell Me, but this time it's a remix.
If you're looking for something more classic, EZTV's got you covered. Soft Tension, off their upcoming album, is all sentimental, '80s style rock against mellow harmonies. We'd pair it with a long, aimless Sunday drive. Check out the rest of the tracks below, and prepare to expand your listening library.
